Tasting Notes

The 2020 Le Dragon de Quintus has a bold, generous bouquet of licorice-infused black fruit, touches of incense and potpourri emerging with aeration. The palate is very smooth on the entry, quite lush and pure, and lightly spiced, leading to a cohesive, seductive finish of fine length for a Deuxième Vin. This should give 12–15 years of drinking enjoyment.

A soft, round red with blackberry, chocolate and hints of spice and cedar. It’s medium-bodied with silky tannins and a juicy finish.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2021

Composed of 84.7% Merlot and 15.3% Cabernet Franc, while possessing an alcohol of 15.2%, the 2020 le Dragon de Quintus has a deep garnet-purple color and notions of plum preserves, kirsch, black raspberries and cinnamon toast, plus hints of mossy tree bark and incense. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with juicy black and red berries, supported by soft tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and spicy.
